I am interested in a surge protector for my TT and was wondering what everyone recommended. My unit is 30 amps.

I would also like one of those Progressive or similar...
But they're not even sold or approved (CSA) in Canada.
Anyone knows why ?

Mine is a hardwired Surge Guard.. Some also suggest Progressive Industries.. There's lots of info on here about them.. Main thing would be to have one...

Between the power pole and your camper distribution center inside your camper.

I mounted mine right beside my convertor.. I got the remote display for it and mounted it next to the slide and awning controls in the same set of cupboards..

If it's a 30A, #10 wire is good to run between the surge protector and the convertor.. If I remember right I had a large enough loop, I just cut the wires and put the surge protector in between..

Just bought my unit late last year and only camped once before I winterized it and put into storage. So I will have to do some more checking it out. But I do agree, proper surge protection should be in every RV. Peace of mind is good.

This is what the dealer suggested when we picked up the FW.
It has served well.
